May 09, 2024 // Franchising.com // Stamford, CT and Dartmouth, MA - Riko’s Pizza announced today the grand opening of its first Massachusetts location in the beautiful coastal town of Dartmouth. This new restaurant is the Company’s sixth franchised location.

The Company now operates locations in Connecticut, Florida, Massachusetts, and New York. Key features of the new Riko’s Pizza of Dartmouth include:

  • A separate carry-out order section for easier takeout and delivery
  • Excellent parking with 100-plus spaces.

Riko’s Pizza of Dartmouth is operated by a new franchisee group led by accomplished restaurateur William Medina. With over 20 years of culinary experience, including as an owner-operator, Mr. Medina has started 16 different restaurant and culinary businesses.

“I am so excited to introduce Riko’s Pizza - the King of tavern-style pies - to the Dartmouth community,” said William Medina. “I want to thank Riko’s management team for their leadership and support, which has been critical in opening this incredible location in just seven short months. I also want to thank the City of Dartmouth for welcoming us with open arms; this is truly a wonderful place to live and do business. I know that when the people of Dartmouth and the students of UMass experience our tavern-style pizza, they will instantly be hooked, just as I was. Whether you are looking for a new place to gather with family or friends, watch the game, host an event, or simply pick up a reliable, high-quality pie, look no further than Riko’s Pizza of Dartmouth!”

“On behalf of everyone at Riko’s, I want to congratulate William and his team on their location’s opening and send my gratitude to the entire Dartmouth community. With Riko’s now in your neighborhood, you are free from those sub-par pizza options you have been forced to accept,” said Rico Imbrogno, co-founder and CEO of Riko’s Pizza. “This is a huge day for Riko’s. We are thrilled to enter Massachusetts with this Dartmouth location - right around the corner from UMass - and look forward to growing in the market for years to come!”

To celebrate the grand opening of its Dartmouth location, the Company hosted a ribbon-cutting celebration on May 7th, featuring remarks from Shawn McDonald, Chair of the Dartmouth Select Board, and Mike O'Sullivan, CEO of the One Southcoast Chamber of Commerce.

This new franchise-owned restaurant operates Monday through Thursday, 11am–10pm; Friday and Saturday, 11am–11pm; and Sunday, 11am–8pm.
